Compass Rose Academy held a groundbreaking ceremony on Thursday, October 5, 2023 to commemorate the start of construction on a new building which will serve as a multi-use center for agricultural learning and wellness. 

Scott and Shantel Beck of Atlanta, IN, along with FBi Buildings and The Beck Foundation are providing the financial support for the building project, in honor of their daughter, Jadyn, who was a student at Compass Rose from March of 2020 to April of 2021. Jadyn is now in her senior year of high school, is working part-time at Starbucks, and is engaged in her lifelong passion of barrel racing. 

Jadyn’s Hope Barn, named in honor of Jadyn’s journey of growth and healing, is a way that Scott, Shantel, and Jadyn feel they can partner with CRA to provide hope and healing for many other girls like Jadyn in the future. Animals have been a significant part of Jadyn’s life and help to keep her grounded and positive. 

Jadyn’s Hope Barn will include animal stalls, classrooms, group therapy rooms, a greenhouse, and a large space for recreational activities, trainings, and family conferences. The planning and construction of this project will be led by FBi Buildings of Remington, IN.

The programming connected to Jadyn’s Hope Barn will bring academic, clinical, spiritual, vocational, and nutritional components together to create opportunities for holistic treatment centered around the use of plants, animals, and other natural elements. 

“Some of the ideas and the vision around the therapeutic farm have been ruminating in the back of our minds since the time Compass Rose launched in 2012,” said Mike Haarer, Executive Director. “For this vision to come to life in the form of Jadyn’s Hope Barn with the help and support of this special family is not only incredibly exciting, but it is also a reflection of God’s love, grace, and healing.” 

CRA is looking forward to how this project will equip them to better serve teen girls and their families.
